No Murray, no worries. Georgia crushed Clemson 45-21 thanks to a 31-point unanswered run that started with a kick return in the middle of the second quarter.
The Georgia Bulldogs defeated the Clemson Tigers 45-21 on Saturday, giving Georgia a big boost in their hunt for the SEC title and putting Clemson at a severe disadvantage after seeing rival FSU win.
Georgia had 459 yards of offense against a Clemson team that was left scoreless in the second half. After falling behind 21-14 in the 2nd quarter, the Bulldogs immediately came back and tied it up with a 100-yard kickoff return TD from Todd Gurley – 1 of 4 total TDs he would have on the night.
In the second half, the Bulldogs scored 24 unanswered points to put the Tigers away for good and enter the next week with what will most likely be an improved ranking in the AP poll after topping one of the top 25 teams.
Georgia QB Hutson Mason, taking over for long-time starter Aaron Murray, who joined the NFL, played efficiently, going 18 of 26 for 131 yards.
With the victory over Clemson, Georgia has become the frontrunner for the SEC East division title following a loss by #9 ranked South Carolina.
